A perfect partner in life is someone you can be with and talk about anything without realizing that the day was over. Someone who will always listen and feel twice the joy or the pain that you are going through. When you start to feel that connection…never let it go because there is more to companionship than there is love. Because in the end, when all fails and are consumed…you will always hold on to those times when you don’t even need to hear the words I love you.
There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved. ~ George Sand
Love is a never ending feeling. ~ Adeil Prince
Love is like pi – natural, irrational and very important. ~ Lisa Hoffman
To love and be loved is to feel the sun in both sides. ~ David Viscott
When you love someone, all your saved-up wishes start coming out. ~ Elizabeth Bowen
Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility. It is therefore able to undertake all things, and warrants them to take effect, where he who does not love would faint and lie down. Love is watchful and sleeping, slumbereth not. Though weary, it is not tired; though pressed, it is not straitened; though alarmed, it is not confounded. ~ Thomas A. Kempis
We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, an hour, an afternoon but that doesn’t diminish its value because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives. ~ From the movie “The Mirror Has Two Faces”
Love is not blind. It sees more and not less but because it sees more, it is willing to see less. ~ Will Moss
You will know the meaning of love when you fall in love. ~ A. Terance Dinesh
Love is like an eternal frame. Once it is lit, it will continue to burn for all time. ~ Kamila
Love is a sign from the heavens that you are here for a reason. ~ J. Ghetto
Love is smiling on the inside and out. ~ Jennifer Williams
For better or worse, love never dies. ~ Edis Crncevic
Real love stories never have an ending. ~ Anonymous
Love is a moment that lasts forever. ~ Julie Wittey
Love isn’t blind; it just only sees what matters. ~ William Curry
Love that is true never grows old. ~ Elben Bano
Love reminds you that nothing else matters. ~ Amy Bushell
A friend’s love says: “If you ever need anything, I’ll be there.” True love says: “You’ll never need anything, I’ll be there.” ~ Jimi Hollemans
Love is a decision, not an emotion or feeling that is made from the heart and will outlast anything. ~ Raul & Samantha Juarez
Love is more than a feeling. It is a state of mind. ~ Lisa Grude
I’m drowning in pain,
It hurts too much that I could not explain.
I’m drowning in tears,
After loving you all this years.
I’m dying inside,
That I could not hide.
I’m here all alone, dying
All through the night I’m crying.
I’m moving on, I’ll try
But still asking myself why.
Why am I moving on with your goodbye?
When I still don’t want our love to die.
The Key to Succeeding in Marriage is not finding the Right Person; It’s Learning to Love the Person You Found!
During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question. She said,
“How do I know if I married the right person?”
I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said,
“It depends. Is that your husband?”
In all seriousness, she answered,
“How do you know?”
Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it’s weighing on your mind. Here’s the answer:
EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and liked their idiosyncrasies. Falling in love with your spouse wasn’t hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn’t have to DO anything. That’s why it’s called “falling” in love… because it’s happening TO YOU. People in love sometimes say,
“I was swept off my feet.”
Think about the imagery of that expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU. Falling in love is easy. It’s a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. It’s the natural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (when it happens), and your spouse’s idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute, drive you nuts. The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage. At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking,
“Did I marry the right person?”
And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience with someone else. This is when marriages break down. People blame their spouse for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage for fulfillment. Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity is the most obvious. But sometimes people turn to work, church, a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it. I’m not saying that you couldn’t fall in love with someone else. You could. And TEMPORARILY you’d feel better. But you’d be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this): The Key To Succeeding In Marriage Is Not Finding The Right Person; It’s Learning To Love The Person You Found! SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It’ll NEVER just happen to you. You can’t “find” LASTING love. You have to “make” it day in and day out. That’s why we have the expression “the labor of love.” Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM. You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage work. Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage. Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It’s a direct cause and effect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable. .. You can “make” love. Love in marriage is indeed a “decision”… not just a feeling.
Being happy doesn’t mean every thing’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.
Why do people hurt you?
Why do they lie?
Why do they say you have no right?
When they let you into their life.
Why do people love?
Why do they leave?
Why do they become sad?
When you want them to be happy with you all their life.
Why do they let you love them?
Why do you let them love you too?
Why do they leave you?
When you don’t want to leave them too.
Why do people get hurt?
Why do they feel the pain?
Why do they fool you?
When they are supposed to be loving you.
Why do they make you cry?
Why do they take you for granted?
Why do they say goodbye?
When you don’t have the reasons why.
Why do people continue to love?
Why do they love to love?
Why do they long to be loved?
When you’re loving them too much.
Abelard and Heloise are the Middle Ages’ most famous star-crossed lovers and letter writers. Abelard, a tutor of theology at Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, fell in love with his pupil Heloise. She is the niece of the hot-tempered Canon Fulbert. She bore Abelard’s child name Astrolabe who is named after an astronomical instrument for measuring time. Abelard and Heloise were secretly married.
Fulbert got angry with Abelard for soiling the family’s honor by naming his nephew after an astronomical instrument and had Abelard castrated by his henchmen. Abelard became a monk and Heloise a nun. Despite separate cloisters, they maintained a passionate epistolary relationship and are entombed together in Paris’ Pere Lachaise Cemetery. A sculpture if Heloise embracing Abelard’s severed gonads can be found at Paris’ Conciergerie prison.
I read a lot, as in a lot. I read during my free time. I read most of the time in the bath room. I read before I sleep. I read during vacation trips. I’m really addictive in reading anything! I really had more time sleeping, eating, surfing the net and reading after I resigned from office. I’ve been reading Heartbeat by Danielle Steel since last week, and still enjoying it. I love the twist of the story. It is really one amazing novel that will not disappoint the readers.
Kat gave me a book, The Dictionary of Love by John Stark, Will Hopkins and Mary K. Baumann, as a gift, last Sunday, May 3, 2009. I saw this book in a book sale in National Bookstore, Cybermall in Eastwood, Libis. I really like the book the first time I saw it. Maybe because…it’s about love. I decided not to buy it because I’ve been spending a lot in my job requirements. I just told Kat that I’m interested in the book and planned to buy it soon. I was surprised that she looked for the book herself and buy it for me!
The Dictionary of Love is a three hundred-page book that gets to the heart of the matter.
It’s all about anything you’ve ever wanted to know about love including love songs, poems, history, law books, sex manuals, medical and psychology texts, folklore, modern science, cookbooks, classical literature, Internet dating sites, TV shows, and today’s slang. I’d be happy to share some here in my blog. If you want to say “I love you” in thousands of unexpected ways, this is the best book to read. For guys, you can give it as a gift to ladies in additional to the traditional flowers and chocolates.
This is really one interesting book anyone can enjoy anytime.
